Paper Abstract

Image sequence processing has become important in a wide variety of practical applications, such as robot vision, traffic control, etc. Change detection plays a very important role for it allows the tracking of moving objects. Unfortunately, one remaining problem is due to the fact that temporal and spatial changes of illumination, induce false detections. The present approach can be used for the surveillance of a robotic site and analysis of traffic flow under uncontrolled ambient light. The aim of this work is to develop a safety device based on artificial vision which allows to avoid collision between human and moving machines. This paper presents a new approach of surveillance allowing unpredictable robotic tasks and tolerating independent illumination chnages.
